Cranberry Bars With Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Amykins

These bars are incredible. They are so rich with a shortbread like taste and the yummy cream cheese frosting on top. Even if you are not a big cranberry fan you will like these! A co-worker brought these to work and I kept sneaking more througout the day. I love them chilled. They are good anytime of year, but I especially love to make them in the fall and at Christmas.

I've made these every thanksgiving for the last several years. I also take some to my offices every year. These are always a hit! My kids have been bugging me for weeks about making them. By far the best cranberry bars.
